Oversight: Modernizing our Nation's Infrastructure, Hearing Before the Committee on Environment and Public Works, United States Senate, One Hundred Fifteenth Congress, First Session, February 8, 2017   [open pdf - 7MB]

This is the February 8, 2017 hearing, "Oversight: Modernizing our Nation's Infrastructure," held before the U.S. Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works. From the opening statement of John Barrasso: "President Trump has made improving our Nation's infrastructure a top priority. Infrastructure is critical to our Nation's prosperity. The Senate Environment and Public Works Committee has jurisdiction over our Nation's highways and roads, its locks and dams, and its ports. These things allow for American goods to go from the heartland to the coasts, and even overseas. They allow for flood protection for both rural and urban communities that save lives. In addition, our Committee has jurisdiction over the environmental laws that impact the modernization of infrastructure. Doesn't matter whether the setting is urban or rural; rules and regulations can halt and delay the modernization of infrastructure, and the impact is particularly counterproductive if they are applied without understanding the difference between urban and rural." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: William T. 'Bill' Panos, Michael McNulty, Cindy R. Bobbitt, Anthony P. Pratt, Shailen P. Bhatt.
